I did a little poll on my instagram stories asking what gift guides you were most interested in. I got tons of requests for shopping for in laws and even more so, picky in laws. It’s can be so hard to shop for the people who have everything. So hard!! So I wanted to come up with some ideas that could wow even the most picky of gift receivers. So here are my favorite ideas for 2019.


artifact uprising photo book: There is something so special about personalized photo books. I made one for Blake last year for Father’s day and it’s just such a great way to share photo memories to be enjoyed on a daily basis. You can have photos from a vacation they took or photos of family printed in the custom books.

framebridge framed family photo: I love gifting a framed photo. I often send my Grandmom framed photos from framebridge because it’s so easy and they do all the work for you of printing the photo and framing. This could make a special gift for an in law with printed photos of their grandkids.

williams-sonoma monogram marble board: I love a customized gift and the great thing about this is that you can just select your custom letter and it ships quickly. A monogrammed gift always gets extra points in my book. I find people don’t often buy themselves entertaining pieces and this is a nice statement piece. Great for cheese, desserts, or appetizers.

williams-sonoma marble and brass wine coaster: This wine coast is a super lux add on for a wine enthusiast or even someone that loves to have bottles of sparkling water on the dining table. Really beautiful statement piece to mix and match with the other marble pieces like the coasters or board.

williams-sonoma monogram marble coasters: Love these as an add on to the monogrammed marble board to create a little set of custom items.

williams-sonoma marble and brass cheese knives: Most in laws have cheese knives but do they have marble cheese knives? Isn’t everything in marble just extra chic?? I think so. This is a nice add on to the monogrammed marble board.

winc premium wine tasting for two: If you want to get a nice wine gift set, this is great because it comes with everything in the box. I love that you could add this wine set to some of the other items listed above to make a thoughtful gift basket of multiple items that are themed together to enjoy. This wine gift would pair well with the customized tumblers and the wine coaster. Winc has been a go to in our house. Their wines are tasty and you can either get a gift box, or gift a subscription of wine which is also a fun idea.

Activity gift card: Think painting class, comedy show, theater tickets, or anything along that line. Pinots Palette happens to be one in our neighborhood that we plan to bring my in laws to when they come to town next. Such a great idea when you would rather help someone enjoy an experience rather than give an item.

Restaurant gift card: This is always a go to for us. Find out your in laws favorite place to eat and grab a gift card so they can enjoy it on you. A fool proof gift because you know they will want to go there and you know they will enjoy it.

dyson v11 cord free vacuum: This vacuum is on my own wishlist because we currently have an older model. But let me tell you, this vacuum is magical. I have never been passionate about a vacuum until I got this cord free one. IT IS EPIC. It’s so easy to maneuver and we have influenced Blake’s whole family, and now my parents to purchase it. It comes with a hefty price tag but keep an eye for holiday deals because this would make an epic gift.

google nest hub: I feel like my in laws are getting more tech savvy by the minute and this could make a really fun gift. We currently have a google nest hub on our kitchen counter and it’s a great way to pull up recipes while cooking, check the weather, or just play music.

instant pot: I am so obsessed with our instant pot. We use it multiple times a week and would make a perfect gift for someone that loves to cook. Yes there are tons of kitchen gadgets out there but the instant pot is a game changer. Especially if your in laws like to have you over for weeknight dinners, this will save them time in the kitchen.
